YOUR HOMETOWN WEEKLY NEWSPAPER

Everything’s coming up parks by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer When town officials cut the ribbon at the unveiling of Cornell Park’s new playground next month, the ceremony will not only showcase the latest in hightech fun, it will highlight the community’s ongoing commitment to the live-where-you-play lifestyle. “The Cornell Park playground renovation project is just one of the many public improvements the Town of Discovery Bay CSD has embarked upon over the past year,” said CSD President Kevin Graves in a recent press release. “This is one of many projects that are taking place throughout Discovery Bay that will provide long-term enjoyment to our residents.” The Cornell Park playground will include a new play

structure, climbing net, tiled seat wall and rubber surfacing. A total of $111,000 of the project’s $144,176 price tag was paid for by a grant from the East Bay Regional Parks District. The town’s landscape and lighting district eight covered the remaining costs. “One of the unique characteristics of this project,” said Parks and Landscape Manager Fairin Perez, “is that a tiled seat wall has been incorporated and borders the play area. Residents have been designing tiles, which has added a creative touch to the project.” Regatta Park also got an overhaul this spring in the form a new splash pad. The aquatic play area boasts sprinklers and ground nozzles but no standing water, making them a safe see Parks page 19A

Services set for former Brentwood mayor by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

Longtime Brentwood resident and former mayor Roger Moore passed away Aug. 16 following a lengthy illness. He was 74. The popular politician and local businessman sat on the Brentwood City Council in the 1980’s and served as mayor from 1984-86. He was a member of the Tri-Delta Transit Board and sat on a number of other community boards. “He was an exemplary man who had a real and true concern for Brentwood,” said Mayor Bob Taylor. “He was a kind man and supported me in my endeavors, but he’d tell you

ROGER MOORE AUG. 13, 1937-AUG. 16, 2011 how it was. In other words you had to work for his vote, which

I thought was very fair.” Former councilwoman Barbara Guise remembers Moore as a man who put people and family first. “Roger helped a lot of people over the years and he did it without making a big deal out of it,” said Guise. “He was a wonderful man with a great sense of humor and a lovely family. He will be missed.” Longtime friend Steve Hendrickson agreed. “Roger was a fine man who dedicated his life to helping others,” said Hendrickson. “He has been a good friend over the years.” For many, it was his compassion and generosity of spirit that many believe will be Moore’s lasting

legacy. “He meant the world to me,” said former Brentwood resident Kevin Atwater, who first met Moore and his family in the late 1990’s when Atwater was launching a music career. “I first met him through his son Jason. One night he walked up to me at the bowling alley and out of the blue offered to help finance my music. He was a very positive, caring person. His passing leaves a big hole in my heart.” Moore leaves behind his wife Pat and son Jason. A memorial service and reception will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 10:30 a.m. at Shadow Lakes Golf Club, 401 West Country Club Drive in Brentwood.

Residents sound off against Walmart by Rick Lemyre

“ Walmart would eat the downtown

Staff Writer

Allowing a Walmart store to open in Brentwood would sound the death-knell to the newly revitalized downtown area, residents told the City Council Tuesday, vowing to fight any attempt for the mega-retailer to locate in the city. Reacting to word that owners of the Sciortino property at Brentwood Boulevard and Sand Creek Road – the site of last month’s Brentwood CornFest – were conducting talks with Walmart, residents voiced their objections during the public comment period at Tuesday’s council meeting. Chris Flores accused Walmart of a litany of objectionable business practices, ranging from low wages, under-representation of women in management positions, and destroying competitors by

alive. It doesn’t make sense.

Donna Spencer undercutting their prices. “This is very concerning,” he said. “Walmart is not a fit for this community.” City manager designate Paul Eldredge said that although no formal application had been received, the property has already been approved for a big-box store, and discussions about possible tenants have included Costco and Target as well as Walmart. According to comments made by current City Manager Donna Lan-

deros at a Chamber of Commerce event last week, however, Costco has opted out of coming to Brentwood so as not to interfere with sales at stores in Antioch and Tracy. Target has shown some renewed interest in coming to Brentwood, although other sites within the city are also being scrutinized. Eldredge confirmed that talks between the property owners and Walmart are ongoing, but added that it’s premature to say it will be Walmart that occupies the location. “Until we see a sign on the building, nothing is for certain,” Eldredge said. Either way, he said, the decision as to which tenant is eventually chosen is not up to the city. Because the property has already been approved for see Walmart page 16A

OUESD sues church officials for back rent by Ruth Roberts Staff Writer

The Oakley Union Elementary School District (OUESD) is suing three of the trustees of the former Mountain View Christian Center (MVCC) and Trinity Christian School for breach of contract. The suit, filed in Contra Costa County Superior Court on Aug. 17, names Jerry Dellinger, Dustin Hanoum and the estate of the late Pastor Jerry Hanoum as defendants in the complaint. The OUESD

is asking for payment of $87,074 in outstanding lease payments owed by MVCC for the district’s Almond Grove school site. “This is a regrettable action,” said OUESD Superintendent Rick Rogers. “However, the three leaders of MVCC made personal promises to make the district whole, and I believe it is our obligation to hold them accountable and to their word.” The lawsuit is the latest in a long and difficult history between the OUESD and MVCC. In June of 2008, the OUESD

entered into an agreement with Mountain View Christian Center to lease the school as a church site and private school, but the group continually fell behind in its payments to the district and failed to make good on its financial commitments despite ongoing assurances that the money was forthcoming. “We have made repeated attempts to allow the defendants to make good on their financial obligations to the district, and in the past we were told if we gave them a little more time, they would do so,” said Rogers. “Our patience and un-

derstanding have been exhausted.” In January, Dellinger and the two Hanoums each signed personal guarantees to the OUESD in exchange for a promise to continue the contract through the original date of June of 2011 and for a reduction in the monthly rent. The district agreed to the new terms, but MVCC never made another payment after December of 2010. The suit seeks restitution for the back rent as well as attorney fees and court costs. see OUESD page 16A

More than 200 volunteers recently helped the Friends of the Marsh Creek Watershed spruce up a portion of the Marsh Creek Trail. A creek cleanup is set for Sept. 17.

Volunteers hit the trail; creek next Young people from Brentwood’s Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints participated in a recent weekend retreat as volunteers for a restoration project of Friends of Marsh Creek Watershed (FOMCW). A total of 206 volunteers, most between the ages of 14 and 18, came out to work at the 21,000-square-foot project located on the corner of O’Hara Avenue and Sand Creek Road in Brentwood. The volunteers braved the heat and pulled weeds, cleared brush, covered the area with weed barrier paper and spread 100 cubic yards of mulch. Future plans for the site include the

planting of additional native plants and trees, painting watershed-themed murals on the entrances of the tunnels along the trail, and eventually installing benches and/or picnic tables for a pleasant resting spot along the popular promenade. Such FOMCW restoration projects serve as a showcase for how to utilize native and drought-resistant plants and trees to create beautiful ecological environments. Volunteers and visitors learn to recognize the beauty of California native plants, how they can be used in the home garden and how the plants attract wildlife and beneficial insects. Native plants introduced to the demonstration gardens need no fertilizers or

Cruisin’ the classics PRINCIPAL REDUCTION UPDATE I’ve mentioned the program “Keep Your Home California” several times this year in this article. This program is administered by the California Housing Finance Agency and they received a large infusion of cash from the federal government to help keep Californians in their homes. They have many programs available, from giving you a loan to make your payments, to principal reduction, to relocation assistance if you do have to move. You have to apply for these, and there are no guarantee of approval for any program. Most people are most interested in the principal reduction plan, obviously. The program provides up to $50,000 in principal reduction if the mortgage lender matches the reduction dollar for dollar, for a total reduction of up to $100,000. However, this is the program that was having the most trouble getting off the ground because the big banks weren’t getting involved. The banks have been pretty reluctant to drop principal, historically. Without the big banks’ cooperation,

That said, it is only right to examine what Sports Illustrated has dubbed “the world’s most dangerous golf course.” Located in South Korea, and built back in 1972, the golf course at U.S. Army Camp Bonifas was the only form of entertainment and emotional outlet for some 700 troops once stationed at the otherwise slow paced post that is now manned by 50 or so troops. The links are as challenging as it comes; natural hazards such as water and sand have been replaced with military bunkers on the left and 18-foot high barbed-wire security fences on your right. Fairways are only 40 yards wide, and, to earn the title of the most dangerous golf course, a 192 yard Par 3 comes with the warning, “Danger. Do not retrieve balls from the rough. Live mine fields.” The number 78, as in a 78 percent loan-to-value, can also be great news for homeowners that used Federal Housing

Administration (FHA) financing. All 30-year FHA loans, regardless of down payment or equity, require an annual mortgage insurance premium which cannot be removed until two qualifications are met: At least 60 mortgage payments have been made (five years), with no late payments in the last twelve months; and, the home’s equity has reached at least 22 percent. Once both of the above qualifications have been met, contrary to what you might hear, you do not need to refinance in order to remove your mortgage insurance. In a case like this, the homeowner would simply contact their current lender, request an appraisal be completed in order to verify the loan-to-value is 78 percent or less, then have the lender send the needed documentation directly to the FHA.

Challenge from page 8A Columbine High School shooting in 1999. Prior to her death, Rachel wrote an essay in which she described her theory that if one person performs a random act of kindness, the act will start a chain reaction of good will. While the middle school students learn about Rachel and the Columbine tragedy, the elementary school students learn about Rachel’s beliefs and not about her fate. The presentation emphasizes kindness, acceptance and forgiveness. “Rachel’s Challenge is a very inspiring program, but the connection to Columbine is too much for our students at the elementary level, so our students were given an age-appropriate presentation that focused on the idea of paying it forward,” said Marsh Creek Elementary School Principal Teresa D’Alfonsi. “The program presents a powerful message, but even our youngest students were able to understand the importance of kindness. Following our presentation, our kindergarteners were coming up to staff during lunch to tell them about a good deed they did or a kind thing someone else was doing. The message is definitely sinking in.” According to Garin Elementary Principal Stacy Joslin, Rachel’s Challenge has been the talk of the playground. Garin students will be forming a Kindness and Compassion Club in which they’ll brainstorm ways to demonstrate kindness on campus and in the community. “The students have really embraced Rachel’s Challenge,” Joslin said. “Rachel’s story has touched the hearts and minds of our students.” Loma Vista Elementary Principal Lauri James also noticed a change in her students following the presentation. Loma Vista students already review life skills as part of the regular curriculum, but Rachel’s Challenge has inspired them to go out of their way to be kind to their peers. James credits Rachel’s Challenge representative Neil McIntyre for presenting the material in a fun and engaging way, using hip-hop and beat boxing to encourage student participation. “Neil is quite the entertainer, and he had the students engaged in the presentation,” James said. “The kids are really responding to the message of Rachel’s Challenge. They are gung-ho about it, so I’m excited about looking for more ways to keep the program’s message going throughout the school year.” As many students heard about the program from their older siblings last year, James said she’s glad that all students in the district are a part of Rachel’s Challenge this year. The program was extended to the entire district after the Brentwood Education Foundation secured the funds to bring the program to all 10 schools. The district hopes to host Rachel’s Challenge again in the future to reinforce the positive message of kindness and compassion. Edna Hill Middle School has hosted Rachel’s Challenge twice, and according to Principal Kirsten Jobb, the inspiration hasn’t worn off. The school launched the Friends of Rachel Club at the beginning of the school year and prior to the

COMMUNITY

presentation last week, 40 students had signed up to participate. Jobb said she expects that number to grow. As part of Rachel’s Challenge, students are encouraged to be kind and respectful to those around them. As evidence of their positive actions, students write down their good deeds on a piece of paper, which is folded and linked to the good deeds of other students, creating a paper chain. Jobb and James plan to hang the links in their multipurpose rooms as a reminder to students to keep up the good work. For more information about Rachel’s Challenge, visit www.rachelschallenge. org.

There’s no question about it: the new La Paloma High School campus is a huge improvement over the collection of modular buildings the students once called home. As guests toured the campus on Ghiggeri Drive during last week’s dedication ceremony, the consensus response was joy and pride. “Can you believe this? This campus is gorgeous,� said one guest as she walked the quad. “This is phenomenal,� said another guest. “I’m so happy for the students.� No matter whom you talked to, the reaction was the same: the six-year journey that led to the opening of the campus was worth the wait. “It took a long time, but it was worth it,� said Brentwood Vice Mayor Steve Barr, a former Liberty Union High School District trustee. “The students and the staff

have been so patient, and we (the school board and district staff) worked really hard to create a campus that would improve the education experience and foster success, and I think that’s what the students are finding here.� The new La Paloma campus, 4,000 square feet larger than the old Lone Tree campus, includes a gym, kitchen facility, basketball court, recreation field and track; art, science and media labs; and classrooms equipped with the latest technology. The desk design allows them to be formed into a circle to create a collaborative learning environment. And classrooms utilize LCD screens and smart boards to enhance learning. While the upgrade has influenced the educational atmosphere around campus, District Director of Project Development Wayne Reeves told the crowd of more than see La Paloma page13A

La Paloma from page 12A 150 students and local dignitaries that the campus has also boosted La Paloma morale. “I had a student come up to me on the first day and tap me on the shoulder. He said, ‘Now I know the school board believes in us.’ Well, it wasn’t done by me or the board. It was done by a lot of sweat from the students and faculty working as a team to get this school built.” Student Roy Neilson addressed the crowd and expressed the thanks of the entire student body. For many students, the new campus has made the continuation high school feel like a “real” school, motivating students more than ever to strive for success. Principal Regina Greene is counting on

that. Now that the school district and community have done their part, it’s up to students to make the most of their new home. “The tools are here for each and everyone one of you to take hold and continue to build a good bridge toward your success,” Greene said. “Students, this is your time to take ownership of your education. This is your campus. Let learning be your vehicle to success.” Superintendent Eric Volta encouraged students to ride the exciting momentum of the first few weeks of the school year and create a new legacy for La Paloma while building on the school’s traditions. Based on the students’ applause, they intend to do that and more. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Antioch students dressed for success by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer

Students in Antioch schools this week attended their first classes of the new school year, one district officials hope will be more successful than the last. Antioch Unified School District Superintendent Don Gill said that so far, things have gone pretty smoothly for the 18,700-student district. He’s excited about the new administrators and the building projects paid for by Measure C and completed over the summer. And he’s impressed by how students are concentrating on classwork – not coasting. “I’m thankful for positive way in which our teachers, administrators and classified staff welcomed our students,” Gill said. “The students seem to be very focused on their academic work.” One way the district wants to help keep students’ minds on assignments and tests is by its dress code. Currently, all of Antioch’s middle and elementary students wear uniforms. In last year’s spring semester, the district enacted a dress code at its high schools. According to Antioch’s policy, students must wear school colors; keep backpacks, clothing and jewelry free of any derogatory or gang slogans; take off hats when indoors; and cover up bare midriffs and unnecessarily exposed skin. Christian Carter-Maddox, a junior at Antioch High, said the district’s uniform policy is a good thing. CarterMaddox wore a gold polo on Wednesday, as many of his classmates wore either black, gold or white tops, or class-specific T-shirts. District administrators are anxious to see the results of the dress code enforcement at its two traditional high schools – Antioch and Deer Valley. While enforcement has been scaled back at Deer Valley as new principal Ken Gardner gets accustomed to his post, Antioch sees a future of high

According to Gill, all Antioch high schools – including the Dozier-Libbey Medical High School – will eventually institute the policy. Gardner took over this summer at the district’s largest school after the district decided to switch from a two-principal model. Former Deer Valley co-principals Clarence Isadore and Scott Bergerhouse have taken similar jobs, Isadore leading Vallejo High School and Bergerhouse now the vice

principal at Black Diamond Middle School. “We didn’t want him to be burdened with the task (of enforcement),” Gill said of Gardner. “The goal for the board is to have every student in a uniform K through 12. Something like that that shows school pride and connection to the school.” Gill and Antioch High Principal Louie Rocha said the uniforms are tied to the school’s move to “wall-to-wall” linked learning academies. The city’s oldest high school operates an engineering academy and plans to develop programs in media technology and environmental sciences, Rocha said. Similar programs are in place at Deer Valley and Dozier-Libbey. The uniform program has an opt-out clause, which many seniors took advantage of last year. According to Rocha, of the roughly 60 students who chose not to wear uniforms last semester, most were graduating seniors, while many others opted out due to legitimate financial problems. Some parents, Rocha said, didn’t agree with the uniforms policy. Gill said the opt-out figure was much higher at Deer Valley. This year, now that parents have spent a summer preparing for and buying school-colored clothing, Rocha is expecting better returns. So far, only about 35 opt-outs have materialized, a number Rocha figures will drop as the uniform policy becomes a mainstay. Rocha hopes uniforms will keep students’ focus on schoolwork and help them prepare for the job market, where baggy pants and skin displays are a no-go. “Those little things make a big difference,” said Rocha, an Antioch alumnus. “When you get a group of people, whether it’s a team or an organization, they have some kind of a community feeling, like they’re a part of the same thing. If they’re wearing school team or spirit wear, it seems to bring a little more pride and a little more sense of belonging.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

In defense of school dress codes by Walter Ruehlig Antioch Unified School District Board Trustee At church service this past weekend I saw a young lady who appeared to be auditioning for a scantily clad sojourn to the French Riviera. Seems modesty and restraint have flown the coop in our wildly permissive society. America’s blessing is assuredly personal freedom, but UEST sadly it comes COMMENT imbalanced and with the price tag of run-amok social irresponsibility. Yes, there is growing credence to the fear that America has more than a debt crisis but a discipline crisis. Our youth are falling behind the emerging Asian countries as we decline in math and science competitiveness, attention span, respect for elders, diet, exercise, dress and manners. Of course, the building blocks start at home. In the end, though, the schools are asked to pick up the pieces. That said, the Antioch Unified School District is fighting the good fight. We have to start somewhere, and dress is, we feel, a fundamental. We want our students to see school as their “job” at this point in their life. Our defined mission, in fact, is to “prepare students for college, career and life,” and last time I looked there seemed to be a work “uniform” at most establishments. Beyond encouraging a Dress 4 Success

G

model, we also see disciplined dress as helping safety through easier campus identification; aiding the fight against gangs; building a sense of esprit de corps; buffeting the “keeping up with the Joneses” attitude; and minimizing campus distractions of provocative dress. Where, then, is Antioch now? We are, admittedly, still a work of art in progress but we stand tall as a regional leader. We are certainly giving it the proverbial college try. All our elementary and middle schools have adopted uniforms. At the high school level, our five career-based pathway schools have instituted them as well. Each academy elects their option(s) with student, parent and teacher input. For example, the DozierLibbey Medical School students choose scrubs. Our two comprehensive high schools are in varying stages of implementation toward the ultimate goal of consistency. At Antioch High, the Engineering Academy has uniforms. AHS is targeting wall-towall academies with all students eventually wearing a uniform. The caveat is that the parents can legally opt out, which is allowed by California Ed Code. At Antioch High, those not in an academy are asked to wear “spirit wear,” which are school colors or club or team wear. Last year only 60 students opted out of uniform or spirit wear – a tribute, in my book, to Antioch High School cohesiveness and site and parental leadership. At Deer Valley High, the Law and

Criminal Justice Academy and Delta Performing Arts have their own outfits. The remaining general ed students are encouraged to wear spirit wear. For better or worse, more students opted out than joined in last year, causing a Deer Valley enforcement nightmare. Life, like a football game, is all about making sensible adjustments and retweaking strategy so the site administration will try different motivations as we move along toward academy buildouts. The crucial thing is that all schools, districtwide, will do double time this year to make sure every student adheres to our dress code, whether they are in uniform, spirit wear or opted out. We can’t stop what kids do after school but on campus we do not accept sagging pants and grossly exposed flesh. Parents, most of our kids are well behaved but some bad apples can cause major disruption. We all want the same thing for our kids: that teachers can concentrate their energies on teaching and not on the likes of defiance, foul language, truancy, tardiness, bare midriffs and exposed underwear. Now I know that there are those in the community that I could never convince on the board’s 5-0 voted dress policy. I respect their divergent opinions, as that is what makes this a great country. In fact, I find particular merit in one opposing argument that youth learn by making good choices. That said, I find preponderant enough

TO THE

revision. The East County growth since 1970 has been truly phenomenal, and has been subjected to constantly escalated fire and building codes (my house even has fire sprinklers built into it – a code requirement, I understand). These constantly escalated codes have greatly increased builders’ costs and have resulted in greatly increased tax revenue realized from each building permit and from each new structure. At the same time, the escalated codes have resulted in greatly reduced fire hazards and frequency. This has no doubt resulted in a shift from firefighting calls to EMT calls, yet fire trucks still roll to EMT calls. Mr. Towns suggested that compensation inequities exist between the local district and “many Bay Area cities.” A growing public scandal has resulted from government officials at all levels granting compensation, pension, and benefit increases to public employee unions without obtaining voter approval for such increases, which amount to illegal tax increases. I hope correction of the inequities Mr. Towns suggests is not

practical reasons in this oft helter-skelter society to still elect a dress code. A few parting observations … Our “uniform” policy stresses more the theme of general consistency than a draconian one-shoe-fits-all mode. We are not talking military khakis or even private school blazers and ties. In fact, there are dress choices within the policy that allow for shirts, sweatshirts and jackets (for example, Miliken High in L.A. has some 68 spirit wear options). Antioch schools, as well, have free dress days to mix it up a bit for the kids. It is also well understood by those who have had the privilege of world travel that this debate is really patently American. Uniforms are, in fact, the norm worldwide. I have seen them in places as disparate as Mexico, the Carribean, Europe, Turkey, Lebanon, India, the Philippines and Japan. As to the argument that we are stifling creativity, I would really hope that we are teaching our youth that creativity inherently comes from personality and ideas, not from a choice of slacks. I, for one, don’t see myself as a repressive type. In fact, I am fiercely independent and respect free thinkers. I don’t feel that a tie makes me a stiff, non-earthy person or that my wearing a pink shirt, which I did the other day, takes away my masculinity. My wife is a product of Catholic school uniforms and hasn’t lost her creativity or spunk. Frankly, she doesn’t seem the worse for wear. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

the real reason for the proposed fire tax increase. Tom Coss Brentwood

Slow down, enjoy life Editor: On the way to work in Livermore this morning I witnessed yet another tragic accident on Vasco Road. A young man passed me on his motorcycle going way too fast and plowed into the back of a fully loaded cement truck that was only doing around 15 mph. His bike literally shattered into pieces right before my eyes and his broken body tumbled to the side of the road. Over the next hour, as several motorists provided assistance and the emergency crews arrived and worked on the downed motorcyclist, several thoughts occurred to me that I have decided to share with others. First, I want to express my thanks to the San Jose fireman who pulled over on his way to work to help save the young man. So, let’s not be too quick to bash our public employees, especially police

and firemen who help save lives even when not on the job! Second, ask yourself if you are ready to kill or to be killed. If so, go join the armed forces, get a gun and deploy overseas; don’t use your vehicle as your weapon of choice! Why are we in such a hurry? Why are we so angry? Life is short, fragile. Slow down and enjoy it a little! Last, I struggle to understand why it took 25 minutes for the first responders to arrive at the scene. It appears that all of the emergency vehicles came from the Contra Costa County side (commute direction) and had to fight miles of bumper-to-bumper traffic as the lanes were blocked by the accident. It would have made much more sense to dispatch the CHP and firemen from Alameda County (non-commute direction), especially since the accident was less than two miles from the county line. The protocol for dispatching emergency responders on Vasco Road needs to be reviewed, as it must consider the commute traffic as well as location of the accident. Homer Williamson Brentwood

Oakley mayor takes personal approach by Samie Hartley Staff Writer Oakley Mayor Jim Frazier wants to be accessible to the residents he represents. His cell phone number and personal e-mail address are posted on the Oakley website, and his activities and thoughts can be viewed on Facebook. But Frazier has decided to take his outreach a step further by initiating the Walk and Talk with the Mayor program. On the first and third Saturdays of the month, Frazier meets with residents at the Marsh Creek Trail entrance on East Cypress Road, next to the Kragen’s parking lot. At 7:30 a.m., the mayor and his guests take off for a casual three-mile walk along the creek and discuss issues facing the community. Frazier got the idea from State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, who hosted walks when he was a state senator. Frazier appreciates the personal approach, so when he began walking the trail on a daily basis as part of a new exercise regimen, he decided to invite fellow Oakleyites to join him. “We don’t get a huge turnout at the City Council meetings, so I wanted to offer another venue for residents to voice their concerns,” Frazier said during Saturday’s walk. “And this is a great way to meet other people in your community. Come out for a walk. It’s good exercise and we’ll chat about things happening in Oakley.” Susan Morgan has taken a recent interest in local politics and joined the mayor for both of the August walks. An Oakley resident of two years, Morgan showed up to get a better understanding of what’s going on in Oakley, and plans to attend the event regularly. “This is a really nice thing the mayor is doing,” Morgan said. “How many

Oakley Mayor Jim Frazier, right, talks with residents during his Walk and Talk with the Mayor program on Saturday. mayors are willing to come out and walk and talk with community? It’s just another thing that makes Oakley really special. Mayor Frazier is out here in a shirt and shorts walking his dog like any other member of the community. It’s reassuring to know that our local representatives are so accessible and truly want to hear what’s on our minds.” During Saturday’s walk, Frazier was joined by his wife, Janet, their dog Rocky, Vice Mayor Kevin Romick and his dog, and a group of eight residents. He said about 10 to 12 people typically show up for each walk, which isn’t bad since he launched the program in July. Frazier believes the small-group for-

mat lends itself to more personal and detailed conversation about what’s going on in Oakley – matters such as the Neighborhood Watch workshop (scheduled for Aug. 30), an update on the East Contra Costa Fire Protection District (Frazier is a board member), economic development plans associated with the downtown revitalization project, and the Oakley Police Department’s plans to acquire a second K-9 unit. Oakley resident Reginald Guillory went on his first walk with the mayor on Saturday and said he appreciated the opportunity to connect with other members of the community while getting the chance to talk with the mayor and vice mayor.

Ana Marie Bustos, also a first-timer, said she enjoyed the walk and will likely attend more in the future. Frazier plans to continue the program through the rest of his term, which concludes in December. He’s currently looking for an alternative meeting place to host the event should one of the walks get rained out. “I want the community to know that I care,” Frazier said. “I want to address their concerns.

through a park dedication fund and a portion of landscape and lighting zone 57. Not to be left out, Slifer Park is on track to get some new shade structures, a pickle ball court and a dog park. Public discussions on the dog park are expected to begin next month. And though still in the preliminary planning stages, the county-owned Slifer Park upgrades are budgeted for around $300,000, but could be less, depending on the project’s final design.

And if it seems that the town has suddenly gone park-happy, Perez believes it only appears that way. “Most of these projects have been in the works for a long time,” he said. “But with all the red tape with the county (some of Discovery Bay’s parks are owned by the county) and approvals, it takes a while. But things are definitely moving now, and it’s been really great to work with a board that understands and supports these types of projects.”

The Cornell Park ribbon cutting ceremony, held Saturday, Sept. 10 at 11 a.m., will feature light refreshments, music, bounce houses, cotton candy and children’s games. Tiles are now being sold for the next section of the Cornell Park wall and can still be purchased. Each tile costs $35; four for $100. For more information, call the town offices at 925-634-1733.

Falcons, Lions raise own expectations by Michael Dixon Correspondent Liberty The Lions girls water polo team was one of three Bay Valley Athletic League squads that qualified for the North Coast Section playoffs in 2010. They split their two matches against Freedom and ran the table for the rest of the league season – as did Freedom. The Lions won the tiebreaker, earning them the higher playoff seed, by virtue of beating Freedom in the teams’ second confrontation. Liberty’s season screeched to an abrupt halt in the first round of the playoffs in a 20-6 loss to Mission San Jose. Gone from that team is leading scorer and two-time league MVP Lindsay Hull and defensive specialist Jessica Rodriguez. Replacing them are captains Paige Lange, Rebecca Day and Ashton Lunger – all in their fourth year on head coach Chris Rose’s varsity team. “They know the system and know expectations for the team,” Rose said. They’re doing an excellent job providing leadership. I’m excited about the team and impressed with their work ethic and dedication. They’re shooting for the common goal of winning the league title.” While Lange, Day, and Lunger are the most experienced players, they’re not the only ones who know Rose’s system. Nine of the team’s 14 players are seniors. One of them, goalie Megan Abreu, will share time with junior goalie Morgan Richey. “Our goal is to contend for league title again,” said Rose. “We have as good a shot as any. We have experienced senior girls coming back on the team, as well as a good group of juniors and sophomores.” Freedom Freedom’s co-BVAL championship team was loaded with seniors, the most notable being senior Taylor Henry, the Falcons’ leading scorer and co-league MVP with Hull. The 2010 team lost its playoff game 9-7 to Clayton Valley. This year, the Falcons’ only senior will be Emily Pels. Head coach Lindsay Bell expects strong play from juniors Anna Carter, Adrianna Subias and Maddie Ridl, plus sophomore Jamie Roeder. Another key departure is goalie Amanda Jennings. Replacing her is sophomore J.J. Matous. “We should do OK,” Bell said. “It’s definitely not going to be the huge success that we had last year, but it won’t be

We’re looking to get these girls more experience at the varsity level.” Bell believes the competitiveness throughout the league will be as good as she’s seen in her four years as Freedom’s coach. Many of her players participated in the inaugural season of the Oakwood water polo program – open to players throughout East County – and other winter and summer club teams. The likely impact of Henry’s departure will be a lowerscoring Falcon team. Still, Bell likes her squad’s overall look, especially on defense. “Defensively we should do well,” she said. “Offensively we may struggle a bit trying to find someone who can step up and fill those shoes.” Heritage As only two players from the 2010 roster were lost to graduation, the Patriots team that Foothill eliminated in the first round of the postseason is largely intact. Head coach Carol Bronzan is optimistic about this season. Senior Caitlyn Freeman and junior Caitlin Cook were the squad’s two leading scorers, and both return. Also returning is junior Emma Formato, who earned All-League Honorable Mention status in 2010. All three players are also strong de-

fenders. Junior Goalie Caitlin Bronzan also returns from last year. Freeman, Cook, and Bronzan received team MVP honors. Freeman was a first team All-League player, while Bronzan and Cook were named to the second team. “We have a lot of strong returning players,” Carol Bronzan wrote in an e-mail. “We are looking forward to a strong season, probably the strongest the Heritage girls have seen in recent years.” As with many local teams, the Patriots’ offseason featured increased club play, which should bolster their quest to return to the playoffs. “We have many returning varsity players,” Bronzan said. “Many of the girls played for club teams during the winter and summer, so are returning to the high school season much improved.” Deer Valley Despite the 2010 Wolverines’ lack of depth, the team recorded a respectable season. The 2011 team will be led by AllLeague senior Dana Stormes and sophomore twins Vicki and Tricia Talens. Seniors Stormes and Cami Chica will captain the girls team. Head coach Kiel Olff is excited about the more see Expectations page 26A

Former Patriot answers last-minute call from OSU by Justin Lafferty Staff Writer Ryan Howell was getting ready for classes at Chabot College when his baseball coach told him to get his high school transcripts together. Oregon State had an opening on its roster and wanted the former Heritage High rightfielder to fill it. Howell recently signed a letter of intent to play baseball for the Beavers, ranked No. 25 nationally. The Bay Valley Athletic League offensive player of the year in his junior season, Howell hit for a .466 average as a senior. He earned first-team all-BVAL honors this past year, driving in nine runs and scoring 25. In his junior year, Howell batted .435 with 27 runs scored. “It just felt like all my hard work has finally paid off,” Howell said. Heritage manager Kevin Brannan said that he’d miss Howell’s leadership, along with his arm and bat. Brannan said that Howell was the guy who always delivered in the

He’s excited to see what the outfielder can do in a top program like Oregon State, which won the NCAA Championship in 2006 and 2007. “I’m fairly surprised I wasn’t getting a few more inquiries,” Brannan said. “I firmly feel that of all the kids we’ve

sent to Division I (schools), this kid has the most possibility to excel there but possibly go on and get paid to play this game.” Howell had no idea that the Beavers were interested in him until he heard about the scholarship offer. After the Atlanta Braves drafted centerfielder Brian Stamps, Oregon State had a spot open on its roster. After Stamps signed his pro contract, the Beavers contacted Chabot College’s manager, Steve Friend, who texted Howell to tell him of the news. Last week, with his friends and relatives by his side, Howell officially signed on to attend Oregon State. Likely, he will play the corner outfield positions for the Beavers, but could also see time at first or third base. “It’s always been one of my dreams to play in the Pac12, so I’m pretty excited about that,” Howell said. “It was a big surprise.” Howell is the second Patriots baseball player to be connected to the Pac-12 Conference. Senior pitcher Paul Blackburn, the reigning league MVP, has committed verbally to Arizona State.

Lions aim to restore the roar in the pool by Michael Dixon Correspondent Liberty The Lions boys water polo team went undefeated in league play a season ago. Its season ended in the first round of the North Coast Section playoffs in a 7-2 defeat at the hands of Monte Vista. Gone from that team are stalwart players Leo Colbert, Jase Rosseler and Alex Soderberg. Head coach Kurt Roessler was most concerned about replacing Colbert, a stalwart goalie who rarely played a bad game. Replacing him is senior Tom Dywer. “I was worried because we didn’t have anyone to replace Leo,” Roessler said. “In the offseason, he (Dwyer) really stepped up, worked hard and is looking very good in goal. He’s the starting goalie and still working hard. I’m excited at the way he’s been playing.” As for the rest of the team, the cupboard isn’t bare. Returning senior J.T. Sarmento, last season’s league’s MVP, is the object of Division I schools’ interest. Joining him are seniors Logan Trudell and Jake Flint, as well as Kevin Koenig and Chad Russick, who the coach believes owns the best shot on the team. “We’ve got some really good players to fill in,” Roessler said. “Our starters from last year stepped up; we’re looking really good. If these guys can come together as a team, there won’t be a weakness. Last year we played against a lot of teams that were man-for-man better, but we played as a team and beat them.”

Heritage The Patriots’ second-place, 13-11 record a season ago was good enough for a berth in the NCS playoffs. Their season ended in the first round against San Ramon Valley. While Nick Araujo is in his first year as head coach, he isn’t new to the program, having watched most of the matches over the last several seasons. Heritage returns three starters from the varsity team: Carter Haines, John Palazzotto and goalie Ty Elder. All three are seniors. Despite the graduation of Timmy Yu, Kenny Strauss, Zach Duran, Jackson Bahns, Travis West, John Hockel, Eric Stone and Kurt Holzmuller, the new coach likes the team. “The team looks really good,” said Araujo. “I would say that 100 percent of my varsity players and 95 percent of JV players played summer club water polo. That hasn’t

ever happened in the past out here.” The progress is by no means exclusive to Heritage, as all of the league’s rival coaches are reporting similar progress – much of which is due to the inaugural season of the Oakwood Water Polo Club. “The kids took it upon themselves to work hard all summer,” Araujo said. “I can see a huge difference. We all see improvement in our players. Competition should be much improved this year.” Deer Valley The Wolverines expect strong play from seniors Alex Bilderback, Andrew Wayne and Solomon Abuda. Wayne is a captain along with Andrew Harrington, also a senior. The majority of the players Deer Valley will send to the pool are returning from the 2010 team. “They are very versatile and can run the offense with a number of different looks,”

head coach Kiel Olff wrote in an e-mail. “They have great arms and raw ability. They really need solid defensive efforts from everyone in the pool. We’ve made a decision to really up our conditioning this year, and we’ll see if it translates.” One change from last season will be in net. Sophomore Mark Ortlieb and senior Erick Lloyd are vying for the starting role. Freedom The Falcons boys didn’t enjoy the success of the girls team did last year. While the girls won the league title, the boys struggled, fielding a roster featuring only one senior, goalie Dalton Weger. Additionally, Freedom boasted only two juniors in 2010, plus five sophomores and two freshmen, all of whom have a year of high school water polo under their belts. Antioch Antioch experienced a 2010 season similar to Freedom’s, only without the benefit of a home pool. The Panthers’ only home game came against Freedom. For the Panthers, the term “home game” is used loosely, as their home pool is located on the Los Medanos College campus. This year, the pool at LMC is ready for home games, so Antioch will have the benefit of a consistent home schedule, even if it means added travel. “It’s really coming together,” head coach Nick Plurkowski said. “We still have to do see Pool page 26A

experienced lineup. “The girls team is pretty small in stature but very quick up and down the pool,” Olff said. “Hopefully we can use the fast breaks to our advantage and score some speed goals.” While Deer Valley has a new face in net, the name is part of the school’s water polo legacy: sophomore Sara Donohue – sister of 2009 BVAL MVP Megan Donohue – will be her team’s last line of defense. Antioch Senior captain Amanda Loomis will lead Nick Plurkowski’s Panthers, who will strive to elevate their status in the league standings. “We’re hoping to contend,” Plurkowski said. “We have a lot of non-league games. So we’re hoping to get outside early and bring what we’ve learned back to the league.” Two key players expected to aid and abet

ated, but seniors Logan Crump and Nick Putman return. They’ll be joined by roughly a half dozen other baseball players new to Antioch water polo. “It’s really exciting to have arm like that,” Plurkowski said. “They aren’t all the best swimmers, but they’re going to be high scoring. They’ll be able to get out and get some goals.” The remaining Bay Valley Athletic League team is Pittsburg, which has no water polo team. The Pirates’ campus is also without a pool. The Pirates do, however, field a swim team, and like Antioch, plays home games at Los Medanos College. To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

in the improvement are sophomore Shelbi Graifman and freshman Megan Fuhrmann. The inexperience of Antioch’s 2010 team has been rectified. Summer competition has helped the Panthers find a better approach to the game and work better as a team. And Antioch finally has a home pool – though not in a traditional sense. Last year, the Panthers played only one home game (boys and girls) because their pool at Pittsburg’s Los Medanos College wasn’t set up for water polo until the end of the year. Despite the disadvantage of playing home games in Pittsburg, Antioch will have LMC’s pool at their disposal for the entire season, meaning that opponents will be true “visitors.” “Playing at LMC is great,” Plurkowski said. “It’s an amazing facility and we’re all glad to be there.”

Wolverines from page 3B battling for the job with sophomores Joey Lingenfelter and Nsimba Webster.

New players Replacing quarterback Mike Behr won’t be easy. In addition to Smith, Cole and a strong offensive line, the person who wins that job will have the benefit of receivers Alex Pacheco, a senior, and junior Deon Pruitt. Pruitt will also see time at running back. Woods also expects big things from defensive lineman Ricky Flowers, outside linebackers Scott Mills and Derrick Major. All of them are either new to the varsity squad or saw limited playing time in 2010. “What this group lacks in athleticism,” Woods said. “They make up for in teamwork, size and strength in the weight room.”

Outlook The Wolverines will face a stiff test in the third game of the season when they host Folsom, which finished 2010 as the fifth-best team in the nation and second best in the state, winning the state championship in its division. One of the Bulldogs’ playoff wins came against Vacaville by a score of 75-6. Vacaville, which is on the schedule again, handed the Wolverines their only preseason loss by a convincing 47-26 score. “This might be the toughest preseason schedule in history of the

school,” Woods said. “To me, Folsom is the biggest game. They are just such a power. But we look at all of those guys as tough.” After a bye week, Deer Valley begins its league season with a home date against Liberty, whom they beat in overtime last season. A key test will come the following week when they face defending Bay Valley Athletic League champion and perennial power Pittsburg on the road. “This is a well-balanced league again this year,” Woods said. “There are the normal tough dates and some really good upcoming teams. It’s just a tough league.” Game to watch: Sept. 16 vs. Folsom

Junior varsity Head coach Lonnie Barnes expects that his junior varsity will be one of the top two in the league, along with Freedom’s. Sophomore running backs Christian Gallega and Jeff Robinson Jr. both return from last year’s junior varsity squad. Barnes expects lineman Brian Faatalale to lead a group he hopes has matured. Faatalale is the younger brother of Wesley and Wyatt. Wesley graduated from Deer Valley in 2011 while Wyatt is a junior on the varsity team. As with the varsity team, the junior varsity’s biggest test will come in their game against Folsom. “Our defensive backfield will be tested that week,” Barnes said. “Folsom has good, strong throwing team.”

Falcons from page 4B first-team all-Bay Valley Athletic League selection, throwing for 1,557 yards and 12 touchdowns. And Mayes’ 168 yards rushing were third best on the team. “The first year, he did some good things,” Hartwig said. “He’s grown into the leadership position as a quarterback and he’s understanding what he really needs to do.” Darrell Daniels, a junior receiver and strong safety, caught 20 passes for 219 yards and two touchdowns. He also recorded 21 solo tackles. Junior Tyler Saude will see playing time at both fullback and outside linebacker. Hartwig likes the way he has grown. Senior wideout and safety Steven Rodriguez was second on the team in receiving yards last year with 338.

It’s always a bumpy road forming a new team. We’re a pretty good family bond, but it took a while to get there. – KEVIN HARTWIG Senior receiver Cameron Brinkman and senior linebacker Frank Cisneros, three-year starters, along with senior lineman Robin Ririe, will form key parts of the Falcons’ offense and defense.

New players One of Freedom’s weaknesses will be lack of continuity on the offensive line. The Falcons lost all five starters from last year’s team. Juniors Alex Cabral, who will play center, and Jamon Wilkins will step up to keep defenders out of the backfield. “He’s not the biggest guy,” Hartwig said of Cabral, “but he gets after it and he’s a good football player.” Junior receiver and cornerback Nenwon Gbilia, dubbed “The Liberian Nightmare,” has wowed the team with his athleticism and his ability to lead by

example. Hartwig said Gbilia’s hard work in the weight room matches his work in the classroom, where he carrys a 3.8 grade point average. Joe Mixon, a sophomore running back and outside linebacker, will also be a factor for Freedom.

Overview Hartwig believes the players have taken it upon themselves to clean up miscues such as penalties and other mental mistakes that hurt the Falcons last season. “It’s always a bumpy road forming a new team,” Hartwig said. “We’re a pretty good family bond, but it took a while to get there.” Hartwig likes the Falcons’ talent at the skill positions – Mayes at quarterback and a bevy of standout receivers such as Daniels, Rodriguez, Brinkman and Gbilia. The team will face its toughest challenges in BVAL play. But before that, Freedom travels to Merced on Sept. 23 to face Golden Valley. Last year, the Cougars emerged in a 43-38 barnburner in Oakley. The Falcons start league play on the rough side against defending BVAL champ Pittsburg on Oct. 14. They’ll end the season hoping to defend the Bell Trophy against Liberty on Nov. 12. Game to watch: Nov. 10 vs. Liberty

Junior varsity Head coach Don Birk inherits a JV squad looking to continue its success. Last year, both the freshman and junior varsity Freedom programs went 9-1. Birk is excited about the JV team’s offense, led by sophomore quarterback Nathan Mallett. The coach likes Mallett’s arm, leadership skills – and his 4.0 GPA intellect. Mallett will have talented sophomore receiver Isaha Barber to throw to. On the other side of the ball, Birk feels that sophomore middle linebacker Eddie Martinez will be doing most of the tackling for the Falcons. Sophomore cornerbacks Aaron Mullins and Daniel Sheppard did a good job of shutting down receivers at a summer camp. “The last couple of years, we’ve been pretty fortunate with our JV football team,” Birk said. “It looks like it might be another one of those years.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

Lions from page 8B 2010. Senior Josh Shannon, a tight end, also returns. Liberty also returns key seniors on defense in linemen Justin Boler and Chris Gutierrez, linebacker Ryan Vail and free safety Anthony Zamora. Zamora’s 2010 season was similar to Lindsey’s, as the safety injured his kidney in the same week of practice and missed most of the season. “We’re not going to wow anyone with our team size, and we don’t have any players that run a 4.4 40 or anything like that,” Smith said. “But overall, we have really good team speed.”

New players The Lions lost seven of their top eight offensive linemen from 2010, leaving only senior tackle Josh Freeman. In many cases, they had no viable replacement options at the lower levels. This has caused them to scramble in the preseason practices to fill those gaps. One of those gaps will be filled by Vail, who moves from tight end to guard. Junior Cody Suckow represents a new face. He’s expected to begin the preseason as the starting quarterback, replacing two-year starter Devyn Parsons. Suckow previously started at the freshman and junior varsity levels. Backing him up is Angel Martos, who has varsity experience as the backup.

Outlook Liberty’s preseason schedule is filled with challenging games. The Lions open

with a home game against Clayton Valley, who’ll be looking to avenge its only preseason defeat when Liberty prevailed in last year’s matchup. Liberty’s most important league dates always come against Heritage (Oct. 14) and Freedom (Nov. 10) – both road games this year. The Lions’ homecoming game is slated for Oct. 28 against Antioch, but the biggest barometer might be the league opener on Oct. 14 against Deer Valley. “This is an athletic league,” said Smith. “The BVAL is a step up from what we see in other leagues.” Game to watch: Oct. 14 vs. Deer Valley

Junior varsity In his first year as coach, Ramon Jackson hopes to improve on last year’s junior varsity team, which went 2-8. The Lions field a strong group of running backs and receivers, led by RBs Joshua Jackson, Daniel Williams and Cody Maghuyop, plus receiver Jimmy Smith. The biggest question mark for Jackson is his team’s offensive line. Manny Lopez is a returning player whom Jackson likes. He thinks his players can block well, but won’t be convinced until he sees them do that against other top teams. “People don’t understand that Liberty has a lot of potential, and a lot of talented kids,” Jackson said. “I believe that my job is to put Liberty football back on the map.” To comment, visit www.thepress.net.

professional athletes. Participants in high school or league football, or other sports where the risk of head injury looms large, can educate themselves about second impact syndrome to get a better idea of just how important it is to emphasize safety when it comes to head injuries. see Syndrome page 19B

August 26, 2011


Syndrome from page 18B

Who is most at risk? Due to the nature of certain sports, athletes, and particularly young athletes, are most at risk for second impact syndrome. According to BrainandSpinalCord.org, an online resource for brain injury and spinal cord injury survivors, second impact syndrome is most common among young people who play football, hockey and baseball as well as those who ski or box. These sports can be especially violent, even for youngsters.

How soon can second impact syndrome occur? A second impact injury can occur within minutes of a first concussion. Such a reality only highlights the importance of the NFL’s decision to keep players from returning to games in which they have suffered a concussion. Athletes young and old should never return to a competition if they have suffered a concussion. In order to avoid further damage, players must be removed from the competition and stay on the sidelines until fully healed. A second impact injury might also occur days or even weeks after the first concussion, and the impact does not have to be severe for a second impact injury to occur.

What are the symptoms of second impact syndrome? Symptoms of a second impact injury

August 26, 2011

typically occur immediately after the injury. Some of the more common symptoms include: ♦ Dilated pupils ♦ Loss of eye movement ♦ Appearance of being stunned ♦ Unconsciousness ♦ Sudden collapse ♦ Respiratory failure After an initial brain injury, the brain is so vulnerable that even minimal impact can cause irreversible damage. When the injury occurs, the brain struggles to control the amount of blood volume to the brain and, as a result, a second impact injury can lead to rapid brain death, which occurs in as few as three to five minutes in certain instances. Such rapid brain death is one reason for the high fatality rate among young athletes who have suffered a second impact injury. Long-term effects of second impact syndrome are similar to those of severe traumatic brain injury. Speech, cognitive ability, sensory ability, perception, and social and emotional interactions might be permanently affected after a second impact injury. Athletes who complain of or demonstrate any of the symptoms of second impact syndrome should be pulled from their competition immediately and visit a physician for follow-up care. The worst thing to do is minimize the significance of a concussion or its symptoms, especially if it’s a second impact injury. – Courtesy of Metro Creative Graphics

Pirates from page 10B Other returning standouts include linebackers D’hari Curtis, Kenneth Nelson and Marco Russell. Offensive and defensive lineman Javonte Brooks-Brown is another key cog. “Our front seven on defense should be really good,” Galli said.

The latter started for the Spartans as a sophomore and didn’t play last season. He’s a major Division I talent. So is Motekiai Maile, a 6-1, 240-pound junior defensive end and tackle whom Galli compares to former NFL standout Reagan Upshaw. “He’s got the same build and can run guys down sideline-to-sideline,” Galli said. Two-way junior lineman Antonio Huey, who would have started on varsity except for a season-ending injury, should be a major contributor as well as first-year varsity fullback/defensive end Crajon Menefee, defensive end/tight end Chima Onyeukwu and tight end Jay Okotie-Yesin, all juniors. Game to watch: Sept. 30 vs. Granite Bay Pittsburg’s BVAL battles with Deer Valley and Freedom figure to be heated not only because they feature the league favorites, but numerous players have switched between the three teams. The game to watch is a Sept. 30 home-turf collision with Sac-Joaquin Section power Granite Bay, which spanked the Pirates 45-7 last season. The Pirates also hope to avenge losses to East Bay Athletic League foes Foothill (Sept. 2) and Monte Vista (Sept. 16).

Outlook The Pittsburg football program, which has featured such players as Upshaw, John Henry Johnson, Lionel Aldridge, Ken Simonton and Olympic gold medalist Eddy Hart, has recorded few losing seasons in its storied history. Under Galli, last’s year’s sub-.500 mark has made the off-season agonizingly long. Galli’s teams have gone 73-34-1 the previous nine seasons, and with the improvement of Watson, Mapp and the defense, bolstered by the additions of Marshall-Cotton and Maile, the Pirates might begin league play undefeated. “I feel good about this team,” Galli said. “But we aren’t going to rely on the ‘P’ (potential) word. We can’t make mistakes like last year or get off to such a horrible start.”

Junior varsity For the first time in 10 seasons, not a single sophomore will be penciled in on the varsity roster, meaning the JV Pirates should be loaded. Coached by Jimmy Shipe, Pittsburg will be big and experienced along the offensive line, led by DeAngelo Powell. The team’s top all-around player should be receiver and defensive back Xavier Crawford, who might see some time at quarterback. Galli said the program is in need of a quality signalcaller at the lower levels. “Other than Malik at the varsity level, we really need to develop some kids to play quarterback,” he said.
